PANTONE 2016 COLOUR OF THE YEAR ANNOUNCED

Pantone have just release the 2016 Colour of the Year... and there are two!

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the 2016 colour of the year. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.  Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
 
Pantone 2016

“AN INHERENT BALANCE BETWEEN A WARMER EMBRACING ROSE TONE AND THE COOLER TRANQUIL BLUE, REFLECTING CONNECTION AND WELLNESS.”

LEATRICE EISEMAN
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR | PANTONE INSTITUTE
Rose Quartz and Serenity

Joined together, this comforting rose tone and tranquil blue creates a soothing sense of order and peace.  We're so excited to include these colours in our collections this year!  Take a look at the Mulberi Serenity & Rose Quartz cushion collection, the co-ordinating Symphony throw in Rose Quartz, and the flat weave Bahamas floor rug made with recycled denim.
 



 
PURPLE IS THE NEW PINK
Ripe berry colours like purple, orchid and plum have been slowly emerging in colour trends for sometime. Back in 2014 we were surprised by the announcement of Radiant Orchid as the Pantone Colour of the Year and now that it's Spring the colour is bursting into all manner of fashion, interior and homewares products.

We have many products available in gorgeous Radiant Orchid including our Regal, Majestic and Splendour cushion ranges and Rhapsody throw.  Take a look!

We are loving the unusual colour combinations in the images below.  These berry colours look equally amazing paired with soft naturals, mint and peach tones as they do with vibrant yellows, greens, dusky teal and ink blues.  This trend is all about being bold with colour.
